Dr. Angela Davis will be inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame this fall.

Dr. Davis was selected for the honor for emboldening "generations of students to critically address and respond actively to contemporary issues of injustice.", according to a press release.

Since the 1960s Dr. Davis has been using her voice to advocate for civil rights and women's rights.

She has taken up a career as a professor and has given lectures across the globe.

Sonia Sotomayor and Jane Fonda are among other 2019 inductees.

The museum, which is located in Seneca Falls, NY, will hold an induction ceremony in September.
